Tandem Friends Fund

The Tandem Friends Fund supports the school’s operating budget with annual, unrestricted gifts that help fund our programs, students, and teachers. Some of Tandem Friends Schools’ best programs could not happen without the Tandem Friends Fund, including:
  • Experiential education in the form of class trips to Black Hills, SD; Smoky Mountains, NC; etc.
  • Investments in technology, like our Chromebook program.
  • Financial aid to families who enrich our school community.  
  • Funding for essential staff and teacher professional development programs.
When you support Tandem Friends School, your generosity directly benefits our students and teachers, every day. Whether it is in a classroom or on an experiential learning trip, in morning meeting or on a field trip, every member of our community is supported by your gift.

Did you know?
You can now deduct your gift to Tandem, even if you take the standard deduction. The CARES Act that passed on March 27, 2020 allows for up to $300 per taxpayer ($600 for a married couple) in an above-the-line deduction for charitable gifts made in 2020. This means that you can lower your income tax bill by giving to Tandem today, even if you don’t itemize your taxes.
